We are an international development charity registered in the UK

We support communities in Bangladesh with opportunities to improve their own lives

We do this by directly funding community led projects that provide education and vocational training, access to water and sanitation and teach people about their rights.

We have a particular focus on street and working children and women. We work from the grassroots level right up to the national government to help individuals and communities become more independent.

Whilst our primary focus is on medium and long term development work, in the event of a humanitarian crisis in Bangladesh the DAM UK Council of Management in consultation with DAM will take a view on the appropriateness of a response from us.

Our vision is a Bangladesh that is an inclusive and sustainable society where women, men and children alike of all backgrounds are able to thrive and live their lives with dignity and respect.
